- colored clay
- suede cord or hemp
- a baking sheet
- a toothpick
- acrylic paint
1. Roll the clay into balls and use a toothpick to create a hole (make the hole a bit bigger than you'd like since the beads will shrink slightly when baked).
2. Bake the beads on a baking sheet according to the instructions on the clay package.
3. Paint the beads after they've cooled. Use fine paintbrushes or the head of a nail to create polka dots — get creative!
4. String them onto suede cord or hemp to create necklaces.
